I got the task to make a pano of our city with about 30.000 inhabitants. The mayor of the city wishes a virtual tour around all interesting locations, including shops, companies etc...
1. For better orientation a large section of google map is needed, not to say that the whole screen of the monitor would be useful to show google map.
It would be great when google map automatically optionally would hide (in advanced settings), when a pano point is clicked on the map.

2. Would it be possible to determine the vertikal size of the map as well like the horizontal. The starting point (y value) from bottom would be perfect. It would be possible to access the navigation bar at the bottom while map is shown. So the user can hide and show the map from navigation everytime he wants. At current state the map covers the pano when pulling it out to the right via slider. This is very circumstantial.

Thanks

For now you might wish to consider using a Toggle button plugin to control the opening and closing of the Map?

If using a toggle button to show a large section of google map the control bar will be covered by the map. After clicking on a point on the map you have to push back the map manually to get the pano into view again. That is not so fine.
Thank you for your efforts.

So what, you cannot manipulate the tour - using the control bar - while the map is covering it?

You could alternatively use a vertically orientated control bar?

If you use a Toggle button then clicking the button a second time - when the Map is open - will close the map. that's why it's called a Toggle button.

Alternative approaches:

1. Use a Planar image in the tour as the Map.

2. Use a graphic map as a Floorplan image.
